This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


Democrats Did What In Florida??

The way I read this every Dem voted for this. Wow very Republican like.

The House Democrats used their 44 votes in the 120-seat chamber to block numerous bills today.

One of them was-

an ultrasound requirement—similar to the one passed by Oklahoma on Tuesday—that would require an ultrasound on a woman prior to abortion, within the woman’s view, and with a description of the fetus’ development. It would go even further than the Oklahoma law in requiring that the woman also pay for her ultrasound.

Not sure how this will end up but it appears our side at least for a day kicked some right wing ass!

Fighting back like this could carry a price.


  1. My Prediction! Pain!

    The republicans everywhere are scurring about soaked in baptismal water and crazy juice that they have drank for years of believing that what the last administration did was right and how dare those that don't drink the same juice or were not baptised in the same water as they are no more than ungodly folk who deserve all they get for not converting to their ways. They BELIEVE we are an anti christian movement!

    Religion to them is all they have to provide themselves with a backing and when someone does not conform to their standards of religiousity they strike out at us because God has predetermined their lives and they must conform to &%#'s will. Crazy as it seems these people are the zombies portrayed in movies with skin that falls off and walk mindlessly around bumping into anything in their path. They have a unique inability to not think, they follow anyonw who does regardless of the thinkers motives. Sad isn't it. They allow the thinkers to excite them, depress them and ask them for money to do is all over again. A whirling dervish of stupidity, a tornado of nonsense is what we are wirnessing. Is there any other rational and common sense reason for someone on social security to go get a piece of cardboard and a stick and write a sign that says keep big government out of my social security and join a group of like minded people who display equally nonsensical signs together? This to will pass, Barack has a large amount of sanity stored somewhere close to the White House where he goes every day and replenishes his supply that he spreads every day on our nations capitol and is slowly being soaked up by those reside there and around the world. Long eh? Pent up, and now let go.
